Yes, it's as bad as it looks. I watched this film today, because I was slightly hungover and needed something with a muted color palate. The overcast skies and earth-toned cardigans were soothing, but the storyline, character development, and casting were horrible. Josh Duhamel as a brooding academic? The dude from Las Vegas who's married to Fergie?
I kept imagining Duhamel trying to get into character by doing stuff like wearing fake glasses and telling Fergie that her point was "mute" while on their way to spray tan.
